The Minnesota Vikings will look to claim an early NFC North battle as they challenge the Chicago Bears on Sunday afternoon.
Through the first three weeks of the season, the Minnesota Vikings have shown what they can do on both sides of the spectrum.
For 11 of the first 12 quarters of the 2019 season, the Vikings have been a dominant team, jumping out to early leads and riding their running game and defense to victory. In the outlier in Green Bay, the Packers did the opposite sending the Vikings to their first loss of the season.
As Minnesota enters Week 4 with a 2-1 record, they’ll have another chance to step up to an early challenge when they head to Soldier Field to take on the Chicago Bears. While the Vikings have dispelled the Soldier Field jinx by splitting the last four meetings in the Windy City, the Monsters of the Midway remain a challenge, winning their past two games after an opening night loss to the Packers.
With both teams jockeying for early position in the NFC North, Sunday’s battle is an important one that will determine who will sit on top the division tied with the Packers. As with any black and blue division contest, there are plenty of things that fans should keep an eye on as the Vikings try to escape Chicago with a crucial victory.
